Mr BRIMBLECOMBE (MARANOA, QUEENSLAND) - I ask the

Minister for Primary Industry whether Japanese businessmen visiting Brisbane are seeking 30,000 tons of Australian meat, worth, on current values, about £6,000,000? (s it a fact, also, that the quantity being sought cannot be made available because of limitations contained in the fifteen-year meat agreement between Australia and the United Kingdom? If this is a fact, will the Minister consider making an approach to the United Kingdom for a variation in the agreement to enable Australian meat producers to take full advantage of markets said to exist in other countries?
